Iran to answer to offers of "5+1"
On Oct. 29, Iran will response to proposals of the UN Security Council's five permanent members and Germany ("5 +1" countries) on fuel for reactor of Tehran nuclear laboratory.
On Oct. 29, Iran's Ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ali Asghar Soltanieh will meet with IAEA Director-General Muhammad El Baradei and announce Iran's decision on the proposals.
West demands Iran to provide to Russia 1,200 kg uranium enriched at 3.5 percent for receiving 20-percent enriched uranium in order to provide fuel for reactor of Tehran nuclear laboratory. Earlier, El Baradei has prepared an agreement on transferring 3.5 percent and receiving 20-percent enriched uranium, in order to provide fuel for Tehran nuclear laboratory.
The Iranian officials stated that it is necessary to make some changes to the initial agreement.
The Tehran laboratory reactor was built 40 years ago by the U.S. and its main function is to produce medicines. Acquiring 30 kg 19.75 percent uranium from Argentina in 1993, Iran has provided the laboratory with fuel up to now.
